    hi all,

    i just wanted to start a thread for the boston waitlist. it would be nice to know who else in the same situation as me. aslo after checking the list made by mrinalini, i realised that they are many people who have been offered seats in BU and some other colleges. it would be really nice if those people could confirm where they are finally thinking of joining, that is if they do not mind. i hope i am not being too selfish.

    thanks in advance.

    sanju there are a lot of people who are getting into schools who dont contribute to SDN. so the statistics u are looking at here can only be accurate to a point.

    do call BU and ask them when the latest is that they will let u know whether u are in or not. at least have an idea of what time frame has been offered to BU students if they want to retract their admission. also be aware of when the programs in other schools start - that way u will know if any vacancy is going to turn up in BU. dont be disheartened or discouraged. wait and see. i hope u get in. all the best.

    hi Ann,

    I called up BU this friday and spoke t Nicole. she said that they do not have any ranking for the alternate list ( and even if they do i do not think they will reveal it). she said that if there is a vacancy the committee reviews the alternate list and sends a call. So as of now, according to her we just need to wait for the acceptance letter if somebody drops out. i asked her what the deadline for the payment of tution is for acceptd candidates. she said that they need to pay the deposit in 2 weeks and the tution for the 1st year by july. so i think that we should not expect anything at least till july.

    Hope this helps. i myself do not have any hopes for this year so i have prepared myself mentally about applying for next year. lets keep in touch regarding the alternate list.

    Hi everybody,
    I just received the letter from BU. I am in the waiting list.

    Ann03 and pinkpeanuts,
    Did you call nicole ? If yes could you please share the info with us. Even i will try to call her and will post the info after that.

    Thanks

    And BTW any idea about how many students are in the waiting list?

    hi all i just called bu. i dont think i talked to nicole. some other lady thr. she told me tht basicallythey would inform us if thr is any withdrawal. thrs no ranking for the waitlist. and they might just inform us only till mid july after tht its highly unlikely to get a call.

    ram,
    all the waitlisted poeple i know r frm this forum i guess 6 poeple till now.

    Hi All,
    Spoke to Nicole..she said there is no ranking for the ppl on the waiting list and that we'll know by July if we got in or not.Last year 5 to 10 ppl were accepted who were put on the list.Guess we'll just have to wait it out.She did not tel me how many there were on the list.Think there are 6 sdners waitlisted so far.Good luck!

    :laugh: :laugh: Just go the the menu on the right upper corner of the page, and click on Search. There you will have tons of options on how to look. It just takes practice. I've had people PM me asking for help searching something they can't find, :laugh: Sorry, I just think is hilarious, I'm not trying to offend you, :D :laugh:

Ann, whats happening with you? are you taking the part 2?

    Hi,
    My friend got into BU last year. she was placed in the alternate list too and she was notified on July 29th that she was accepted. Another classmate of hers was notified after classes started. So, i guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed till we r accepted!!

    Hi Sanju,
    No I still haven't recieved any official letter from BU..
    Hi Blr,
    Its good to know that they call students as late as july end...it gives hope...
    but they might be reluctant to call me since I don't have a visa :(
    I am just trying to adjust here..
    Take care folks and keep each other informed :)

    pink tooth,i think its time u demand for a reply. they cant treat poeple like this.i dont think ur visa status should matter to the school(u must be staying in us on a visitors visa right?). u might have problems getting a students visa frm the embassy , but the school doesnt care abt this. they have been known to give admissions to students who dont have a current visa to the us.
    so i think u r fine in the aspect. mail thm or call bu and ask thm whts going on. most likely tht u might get in.they wouldnt have delayed so much otherwise. good luck :thumbup:

    sorry folks...couldnt reply I was out of city for some days..
    I still havnt recieved any letter from BU..
    and I am not very hopeful about it.
    I will be going forward with NYU...three years seems such a long time...

    has anyone recieved any letter from BU?

    I talked to Nicole about chances of admission from alternate list: she said its all luck; sometimes they have tWO to three seats and other times no seat at all.

    SO BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THOSE STILL WAITING FOR BU...

    is thr anybody else apart frm pinktooth and pooja who have not received anything frm bu?pooja ,since u have decided tojoin nyu, i think u should demand for ur result frm bu. u dont lose anything by doing tht. u should also let thm know abt ur decision to join another school. who knows u might get a positive result.

    Hi all,
    I haven't received any further communication from BU. I got a mail 2-3 weeks back, saying i'm in the alternate list. That's it. so, the waiting continues.......

    Hi Blr,
    85,3.25.Think you can find it all on mirnalani's list.Btw,do scores and gpa's matter once you are on the alternate list.Heard that they do not..but was wondering how we are picked off it though.Good luck.
